On the 27th of January 2021, the European Parliament voted that blue hydrogen produced from natural gas with CCS can be used as a bridge on the journey to the eventual widespread use of green hydrogen.
The UK has an agnostic position on blue and green hydrogen to ensure that hydrogen infrastructure can develop at-scale. That approach allows for a range of technologies from electrolysers to autothermal and steam methane reformers, and CCS.
The use of blue hydrogen will stimulate progress towards deep decarbonisation in many carbon-intensive sectors. It will also drive investment in integrated blue hydrogen production schemes. These will require a holistic approach to process optimisation across reformers, air separation units, pipelines and carbon capture – the main technologies required for blue hydrogen production.
